Stay with us at Salmonberry Retreat
About this Vacation Rental
Relax and unwind at the Salmonberry Retreat, a warm and comfortable cabin with a vaulted great room and floor-to-ceiling windows bringing in lots of natural sunlight. Settle in by the rock fireplace enjoying a real wood fire or gather around the outside firepit roasting marshmallows and reliving the day’s adventures exploring Mt Hood. The backyard deck and patio is perfect for grilling dinner on the gas BBQ, then socializing with friends serenaded by the sounds of the rushing Sandy River and birdsong. End the day with a soothing soak in the private, outdoor hot tub.
Everyone in the family will appreciate spending time together while cooking meals, watching TV or playing board games in the spacious great room that is open to the kitchen and dining area and leads out to the back deck. The floor plan accommodates up to 3 couples or a small family with 2 queen bedrooms and a full bathroom downstairs and a queen loft with an attached private bathroom upstairs.
You will be close to all Mt Hood activities including hiking trails, snow play areas, restaurants and shops. Mountain bikers can ride 1 1/2 miles to the Sandy Ridge Trails. Your dog is welcome to join you at the Salmonberry Retreat for an additional charge.

This house is settled in an amazing setting, we happened to stay here the weekend that we got dumped in snow throughout the valley which made it a bit tricky to get in and out of the driveway but overall it's a lovely little home.
The only thing that could be improved were that the beds were quite uncomfortable, and on old frames. The furniture could also use some updating but the house was great for what we were looking for over the weekend.

I think it is important to know that the place is not secluded like it appears. The neighbors on both sides are just as close as a suburb. In fact, because there is no fence around this property, all of the neighbors can see right into this house.
The inside is mediocre and the owners need to spruce it up a bit. All of the furnishings look and smell like they came from a garage sale. None of the couches were comfortable. On the other hand, the beds were very comfortable. It seems to have all of the basic living amenities that you will need.
The property was superficially clean, but it did need some attention to details. Most of the lights had dead bugs in them and the vents were dusty and moldy. There is obvious mold and cocking problems in the showers. The toilets need a bit more attention too. I wasn’t looking for luxury, but I would compare the cleanliness and decor of this place to that of a rusty motel.
Lastly, when we first arrived, the entire place smelled overwhelmingly of fire smoke. We reached out to the property management and their reply was, Thank you for letting us know about the smoke smell, we hope you have a great vacation... After developing headaches and nausea from the pungent smell of smoke, and highly considering leaving the place, we reached out again. They instructed us to open all of the windows and turn up the heat. Just to note, we did not light a fire at any point during this trip. We woke up the next morning cold to the bone, but the smell of smoke dissipated. We mildly enjoyed the rest of our stay in this cabin.
We will never stay here again and will not recommend this place to anyone. If this review does not get posted on the vacation website, I will post it in several other places because it is important that people know the truth before wasting their hard earned money.
We are so sorry to hear that this cabin did not meet your expectations. It is our goal that all of our guests are happy with the lodging choices they have made and that every home is clean upon arrival. Thank you for your honest remarks. We agree that this cabin is not secluded and it is not high-end. We hope to have the opportunity to serve you again in a different cabin that suits your needs better when you visit Mt Hood. The next time you book, you can click on "Refine Search" and choose from "Secluded", "Semi-secluded" or "Not secluded" to narrow the choices. Also, look for a home with a gas fireplace to avoid any smoke smells. You can call us 7 days a week for specific information about any of our vacation rentals, too.

We enjoyed our stay very much. The setting is beautiful, and the house was clean and well-maintained. The fireplace kept us warm on cold nights, and the hot tub was a great amenity.
